‘Total 15 wins’ Thompson announces retirement at age 29 “Even if I work hard, I can’t get the results I want.”

Lexi Thompson (USA), who recorded a total of 15 wins, including 11 wins on the LPGA Tour, announced her retirement at the early age of 29.

The LPGA Tour reported on its official website on the 29th (Korean time) that “Thompson has decided to retire at the end of this season.”

Thompson will participate in the US Women’s Open, a major tournament held at the Lancaster Country Club in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, on the 30th.

At a press conference before the tournament, Thompson said, “I lost more than I won in golf,” and “I was criticized for not getting the results I wanted no matter how hard I worked. It was very difficult.

On the 28th, she officially announced her farewell to the LPGA Tour through her social media.

“It’s not easy to say goodbye, but the time has come,” Thompson said. “I will be leaving golf after the 2024 season. “I will enjoy the remaining time because I still have goals I want to achieve.

“I’m looking forward to the next chapter of my life,” he said. “I will find ways to contribute to this sport and develop the next generation of golfers,” he added. Thompson was once called a ‘golf genius’ and distinguished himself early on. She debuted on the LPGA stage in 2012 and has won 11 wins on the LPGA tour alone, including winning the Kraft Nabisco Championship, a major tournament, in 2014. However, her last win was at the Shoprite LPGA Classic in June 2019. He participated in 14 competitions last year, but continued to perform poorly, missing the cut seven times, nearly half of the time. He participated in 6 competitions again this year, but did not meet expectations. He tied for third place at the Ford Championship in March, but performed poorly, missing the cut three times in a row, and eventually announced retirement at an early age due to stress. 스포츠토토
